  • Patent number: 11045833
    Abstract: Disclosed are polymer-coated surfaces encapsulating task specific ionic liquids (ILs), IL complexes, or oils. Also disclosed are polymer-coated surfaces, wherein the polymer comprises ILs or neutral ethylene diamine compounds. Also disclosed are methods of antimicrobial treatment, metal remediation, and gas absorption using polymer coatings encapsulating ILs, IL complexes, and oils or polymer coatings comprising ILs and neutral ethylene diamine compounds.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: February 5, 2018
    Date of Patent: June 29, 2021
    Assignee: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    Inventors: Sahag Voskian, Cesar de la Fuente Nunez, T. Alan Hatton, Ryan Alex Shaw, Paul Brown
  • Publication number: 20210183469
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods of designing peptides having at least one property of interest, such as ?-helical propensity, higher net charge, hydrophobicity, and/or hydrophobic moment. Also disclosed herein are novel artificially evolved peptides (e.g., antimicrobial peptides), which may be designed according to the methods described herein, and methods of use thereof.
